Not seen a goal on this day as only match was Luton in 1974.

Not sure why the crowd was so big that day - it was during the three day week and Pompey had a generator for the floodlights which failed. John Deacon ordered the mains to be used (which was illegal) in the interests of crowd safety.

Sad thing my memory!!!

ManU and the shocking Coventry game.

2 for me the Wigan game in 1980. They were new to the league & had the audacity to equalise in the 90th minute!!! The Oldham side whopped us 4-1 as they ran away with the league that season. Also remember the 2-2 at Man Utd as Walshie was the hero, my mates went, I stayed at home!!!
